After successfully launching their dessert store in Hyde Park, 50SIXONE has become Adelaide's #1 go-to store for freak shakes and desserts that might as well make the risk of having a sugar high well worth the risk!
Upon first glance of their Instagram account, you'd think that this place is too magical and unreal to exist. But lo and behold - there are now not 1 but 2 stores where your sugary dreams can come true!
Opening their newest base in the picturesque Adelaide Hills in the suburb of Mount Barker, 50SIXONE has come together to create an ever bigger sense of tourist influx to the Hills, where people line up for well over an hour to get their dessert fix.

Co-owned by Simon Flocco and Anthony Canova, 50SIXONE was created with the vision to offer Adelaidians with the option of enjoying freak shakes that seem to make New Yorkers stop what they're doing and indulge in a bit of sweet, decadent desserts (and much more).
Among the favourites, there's every kid's best friend - OMG!! Snap.. Chat.. That!, which is a beautiful concoction of bubblegum, candy, rainbow sour strips, and a giant lollipop to top it off! There's also the Pretzels For President, which is a salted caramel flavoured thick shake that is topped with an Italian zeppole, chocolate dipped pretzels, popcorn and fresh cream.
The menu isn't, however, limited to just their popular freak shakes. There's also options of breakfast meals - such as the fluffy Nutella pancakes, which are filled with fresh cream and topped with a Kinder Egg, a crunchy 24k golden Ferrero Rocher and Nutella ice cream drizzled along the side.
As part of their grand opening a couple of months ago, we were also able to sample the Lovebite, which was a deep fried Oreo cooked in red velvet batter and topped with cream and Persian fairy floss. If there's a heaven out there, this is basically how it would look!
There's also options of savoury - burgers, fries, soups, and sandwiches (just to name a few).
Head chef Dave Bennett has put together an exciting and enticing menu that offers customers of 50SIXONE with a wholesome experience, through their sweet and savoury selection of meals. Situated in the Adelaide Hills, it simply gives people with more reason to venture out of the city and experience the beauty of the Hills whilst devouring scrumptious meals that are too pretty to eat (and are yet best devoured in groups of two or more)!
Whether you're after something small or something more filling, you know that you'll find something at 50SIXONE - be it in Hyde Park or in Mount Barker!
